I did not receive my withholding forms. What should I do?

Monthly booklets are usually mailed in late December or early January.

Quarterly booklets are usually mailed late January. Your first quarterly payment is due by April 30th.

Employers that have previously filed a return and/or made a payment electronically via the Ohio Business Gateway or Ohio Treasurer of State will no longer receive preprinted forms, with the understanding that the forms and/or payments will continue to be remitted electronically.

If you do not receive your forms prior to the payment due date, you may obtain a blank form IT-501 on this web site at Tax Forms Search or we can fax or mail forms to you upon your request if you call 1-800-282-1782. Please be aware that it is your responsibility to make your payment before the due date.

Partial weekly filers do not receive preprinted forms since their payments must be made electronically by EFT through the Ohio Treasurer of State’s office or by filing and paying through the Ohio Business Gateway (OBG). Click on the link below for the current partial-weekly due date schedule:
